Have marked this rug as an excellent quality, value and style - my only negative comment was the color. I purchased the brown since the brunette color was no longer available. The brown was much, much darker than shown. I originally thought it was grey or black when I first received it. In bright light I realized it was in fact very, very dark brown. I thought of returning but decided to keep because it was such a great buy and was able to use it for a different purpose.
